Sometimes that happens if you're using an iPad, the site isn't iPad/phone friendly, but if you tap or click on the photos they come up the right way.

i think the strapped plants could be Agapanthus, and may look nice at the back of the rockery.

Newbie help please :)

I don't think you can expect miracles in the first year of planting, they are building up their roots first. If that little box is in the sun, trailing Rosemary would look nice interspersed with the peri winkle.

Have you got yours yet?

Gosh! I wouldn't use those products, you'll never grow anything there again. Have you tried an iron bar and a small pick axe, I wouldnt  have thought privet that bigger rooted plants. We took out a 100' row of 30 year old conifers and got it all out.

Beautiful, but they don't grow well here, apart from a Nelly Moser type and a Montana, the others are very weedy looking.

It's gorgeous, does it live outside Richard?

Are these Cosmos seedlings leggy?

They are very forgiving, whip them out of pots, put a little bit of compost in the pot,  curl them round until they are up to the seed leaves, then trickle the compost over until the pots full, it does work fine, I do it with lots of seeds.

Haven't posted anywhere else V. Not good.x 

Why won't eastern Euopeans be able to apply for jobs here, they always did, or is that something the EU will put a stop too?

Did anyone see that programme the other week, about those ships, one mile long almost. No crew, just 12 workers, all managed by computers, he said that you can send goods from Shanghai to London cheaper than from your local Spar shop to your house, and that is cheaper and cleaner than smelly fumey Lorries driving across Europe, taking the tunnel then driving through UK.

I can't join the debate, I couldn't win an argument in an empty room, but I have just got a leaflet, it will compost, if it disolves in water it'll go on there.

Its all a load of read between the lines, could, maybe, might, and so on.

As for people not being able to work in Germany or France, why ever not, they did before we entered and if someone can do the job, there's no reason why they can't go abroad and do it. My ex husband worked in Germany, and my friend came from Germany to do nursing.

looking around here, almost all the farmers want to come out, and they are the ones that get money given, apart from Ambrosia rice and Ginsters pasties, that's all we have and if they want to come out, I would be driven by that.

still, my son in law mines the clay that makes the glossy paper, so hopefully his company have done well out of the leaflet.
